This was the first time we used Aristakat charters to dive for Shark's teeth, bones, and dead shells. We found Capt. Jamie knowledgeable about the best spots to dive and we will definitely use him again next time we are in the area. The 6-pack boat is fast, comfortable to ride in, and is great for self-sufficient divers to use.... More

After many trips to Venice, our university diving club had its best success by far with the Aristakat. Capt. Jamie is very knowledgeable about where/how to find fossils, and he is always professional. From the get go, you can tell that you're with a charter that knows what it's doing. Everything from fossil identification to search patterns is explained thoroughly... More

Captain Jamie is always friendly and helpful. Safety is his number one priority and he knows all the best spots for shark tooth diving! I tried other charters but none consistently delivered the great experience I always get with Aristakat! On Our dives with Aristakat this week I didn't find "a" megaladon tooth, I found 3!!!

If you are interested in wreck diving or fossil diving Aristakat charters is the charter for you. The first time I dove with Captain Jamie was in May of this year just off the beach in Venice, FL. Our group was looking for a new charter service that would take us to some of the many dive locations that we... More

Anybody interested in Diving the USSC Mohawk, I highly recommend this charter with Capt. Jaime and Dive Master Chris. One of our favorite wreck dive's to date. Looking forward to our next charter.

Captain Jamie and his crew Ethan, were very knowledgeable, helpful, and charismatic. I was lucky enough to find a Megalodon tooth on my 1st dive, a feeling that can't be described. Thanks Joe

Captain Jamie is a great guy and Captain. He really knows his stuff when it comes to diving. If you want to dive for fossils or sport dive one of many reefs or wrecks then Aristacat charters is the choice to make!!

I get to Florida about twice a year and love to go fossil hunting. For the past number of years I've been diving with Captain James on Aristakat charters. I have always had a great time. He makes it a fun and safe experience and knows where the hot spots are. I always come out with a plethora of fossils.... More
